I  was invited back to Woking yesterday to help celebrate the 1st anniversary of the newly refurbished Londis  convenience store.

Dominic, the store franchisee, has worked very hard over the past 12 months to get the store into shape and  is now selling local produce and involving all of the community in planning further improvements.

The locals were all summoned at dawn (by you know who) to join in the celebrations with complimentary  refreshments including hot dogs, tea and coffee plus plenty of chocolate frogs and balloons for the kids. I  also hosted a Junior Town Crier competition – they were all winners as far as I was concerned!

I was delighted that they’ve invited me back again next year to celebrate their 2nd birthday.
